Displaying Final Calculated Grades

By default, the final calculated grades will not be released to learners unless you have selected the "Automatically release final grade" option during grade book setup. In that case, you may encounter a situation where the "Final Calculated Grade" is not displayed after all grades have been entered. In such a situation, you can release final grades to students using the following steps:

  1. On the navbar, click Grades. In the grades tab, click "Enter Grades".
    Click on manage grades tab

  2. If you want to see the Final Calculated Grade as an instructor, the "Managing View" for the final calculated grade needs to be set to show the grade scheme symbol. To find this setting, click on the chevron next to "Final Calculated Grade" and select "Edit"
    Click final calculated grade and then click Edit

  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page that opens and ensure the configuration has "Grade scheme symbol" checked under "Managing View". Click on "Save and Close" once it is selected.
    Check grade scheme symbol

  4. Return to the "Grades" page and click on the "Enter Grades" tab. Once again, click on the chevron next to "Final Calculated Grades" and select "Enter Grades".
    Select enter grades under final calculated grade

  5. If you are releasing the final grades for the first time, click on the "Select All Rows" checkbox in the top left corner of the table and then click on "Release/Unrelease".
    click select all checkbox and click release/unrelease

  6. Once you click on the "Release/Unrelease" button, you can verify the grades have been released in the rightmost column on the same page. Checkboxes in the "Released" column will be checked once the grades are released. If you wish to add feedback to individual students' final grades, use the "Feedback" column next to the "Release" column or the "Add Feedback" button on the top.
